Design is easy.....?
Always on the look out for design/film/animation/photo taking inspiration - Oh, and travel ideas, (although anything in Japan will always win hands down for me). Currently based in the North East of Scotland.
....rainy stations, cups of hot green tea. My first day in a new city at my new art school. Going ok so far!
My lucky bamboo has certainly worked a charm in this last week. Got my mystery parcel yesterday,then got notice today that my funding came through. Hurray! Good job too seeing as the course starts next week! So with some of my shiny new pennies I am going to finally get a digi SLR. Any advice would be cool and greatly appreciated.
Nothing like an unexpected parcel to cheer you up. This comes as part of my 'back to school (well, uni really)' parcel for next week from a very thoughtful couple. Sketchbooks,visual journals,book bag,materials magazine etc. Thank you! :-)
Can't wait - been a rubbish few weeks. poor Mr PJ has gone and got shingles, :( and my workload appears to be getting worse by the minute. My course also starts in 2 weeks and I still haven't heard if I have definite funding, and to top it all my pay was wrong this month, leaving me a tad short of cash to cheer myself up! Never mind. I shall be back to my usual chipper self (!) no doubt after a few drinks this evening and a browse though everyone's photo's over the past few weeks that I have missed.
I certainly need THIS just now. And maybe a big cake for the creative mind too. Mmm...cake. :-)

Back to work on Monday as the students return for another session. Been messing around in photoshop reminding myself what I teach (six weeks off is not good for the brain), so I know these aren't 'standard photos' but I'm practicing and experimenting with some mobile photos of spiky stuff, erm, cos - I can!
I should be on a train to Edinburgh right now for part of the festival to see Danny Wallace this evening but circumstances have changed things and I'm not now. Sorry grasshopper. :-(
End of a long day - drinks and food in our favourite bar in Glasgow, then homeward bound.
